The AAPD (American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry) recommends a child see a dentist by the time their first tooth erupts but no later than age one. It is very important to establish a dental home as early as possible so we can increase our chances of helping your child enjoy a lifetime of happy, healthy smiles.
Your Child's First Visit in 60026
The first couple of visits will help acclimate your child to the dental office and the new surroundings. The main purpose for these visits is to help them feel completely safe and comfortable in the dental office while identifying any early issues and providing hygiene and nutrition counseling for parents.
Gentle Dentistry for Kids
Both of our doctors really enjoy working with kids of all ages. We will take things nice and slow, introducing your child to all the sights and sounds of the dental office. It is understandable that you may feel a little overwhelmed about your child's first visit. You can take comfort in knowing that our team is experienced and knowledgeable when it comes to treating your child with the friendly care and attention they deserve. Once we know your child is familiar and comfortable with our office, we will start to perform any necessary treatments like exams and cleanings.
We would love to help start your child off on the right foot when it comes to their dental care. Please contact our Glenview dental office today to schedule your child's first visit!
